Miista is a women’s footwear label created by designer Laura Villasenin in 2010. Originally from Galicia in Northern Spain, Laura’s designs seamlessly blend her Spanish roots with contemporary influences including modernism, feminine identity, cinema, surrealism and her adoptive home of Hackney, East London. Designed in London and handmade by artisans in Alicante, Spain, the brand juxtaposes opposites to craft premium quality shoes for women that are artistic, but wearable and timeless. For Laura and the brand, femininity isn’t just comfort, it’s comfortable shoes. Laura chose the name “Miista” as a playful bend on conventions and in salute to worldly and irreverent modern women.
